    Real Connections to the Industry

    With OEM partnerships and raw material manufacturers as our clients, we can serve as a matchmaker for material solutions. Through IRIDIAN and our partners, we are well experienced with what data the industry is looking for and can help you get that data.

  • What is Material Qualification?

    Material qualification is the process of qualifying material for battery use. At IRIDIAN we offer a streamlined approach to get your raw material into the hands of OEMs.


    Materials that are currently available for material qualification are natural graphite, sythentic graphite, or similar materials.  

  • Services

    Coin Cells

    ICL, reversible capacity, DCIR, basic rate capability, CE, voltage characteristics​



    When do we use them?


    Required for nearly any application.​

    Demonstrates: material is coat-able, initial electrochemical characteristics compatible with OEM needs

    Single Layer Cells

    Rate capability, capacity fade, cell resistance, refined modeling inputs, operational voltage range​


    May be required to show how material performs when paired with a standard LIB cathode. ​


    Multi-Layer Cells

    Gravimetric/volumetric energy density, form factor, application-specific cycle life, safety​


    May be required to show how the material works for specific use cases. ​
